Recipe created by Todd Wilbur at www.TopSecretRecipes.com. Marno McDermott was a successful Minneapolis restaurateur, opening a chain of Mexican restaurants in the seventies called Zapata's against the advice of skeptics who said he would never able to sell Mexican food to the large population of Scandinavians in the area. Marno proved them wrong then, and once again in 1976, when he partnered with Max McGee, a former Green Bay Packer football player, to open the first Chi-Chi's in Richfield, Minnesota. The restaurant was built inside a deserted Kroger grocery store and became instantly famous for the intensely flavored and larger-than-usual portions of food. To keep volume high, Chi-Chi's designed a custom computer-driven system that clocks every aspect of service from the time each server enters an order to when the order is placed in front of customers. Special attention was given to the design of the menus as well, with each dish taking no more than nine minutes to prepare, even during the rush hours. Since you're starting from scratch, this appetizer will probably take longer than nine minutes to make. You can choose to make the nachos from stor-bought tortilla chips or make them yourself from the *Tidbits (see below). Personally, I think the fresh, home-fried type tastes best. If you're up to the task, amigos, I say give it a go.
